State Energy Mandates Will Affect Your Investments and Our State

Immediate Action Required!

Because most people understand global warming legislation kills jobs for no good reason, the Governor’s global warming legislation has been renamed the “Clean Energy Jobs Act” (AB 649/SB 450). The bill is being pushed now even though evidence of global warming has been seriously discredited and its proponents are in retreat worldwide.  

 A recent study of the Wisconsin Global Warming Bill by the Wisconsin Policy Research Institute shows that it will:

 • ADD $16 BILLION IN UNNECESSARY COST TO WISCONSIN INDIVIDUALS AND BUSINESSES 

  • LEAD TO 43,000 WISCONSIN JOBS LOST  

Congress and other states are backing away from these mandates, Wisconsin should too. If a bill must be passed it should:  

• Let utilities decide how to meet the goals in the most cost effective way. We have a Public Service Commission to approve any proposal. Let them work without strings attached.  

• Encourage green energy from wherever it can be produced the most cheaply to save consumers money.  

• Encourage all options for clean, safe power, including nuclear. Completely end the Nuclear Moratorium. Even President Obama supports the expansion of nuclear energy!  

• Not force Wisconsin utilities to buy energy from power producers who haven’t shown the commitment to Wisconsin that our utilities have.

• Only require utilities to provide renewable energy that doesn’t raise rates or threaten their ability to reliably provide energy whenever it is needed.  

These decisions are being made right now. The legislative process will end in April. Make your voice heard today by calling your legislator at 1-800-362-9472 or click here to use WUI PowerLines.
